I need to use VNC to control a computer behind a NAT. I have no access to the remote router, but I can have the person sitting in front of the computer follow very simple instructions. I'm also behind a NAT, but I can set up port forwarding if needed. The connection is Win to Win and I was thinking of using UltraVNC. I have no previous experience with VNC. So far from what I've read I've got two ideas:
- Setup port forwarding on my end and have client connect to my computer running the VNC viewer.
- Try using the UltraVNC NatToNat add-on.
Is number 1 possible and realistic? Any kind of documentation for it from the clients pov?
How does #2 work? Are there any public UltraVNC Nat Helper servers?
Any other ideas? This is a one off thing so I don't want to get to involved or complicated.
